Eddie Hayes
General Haulage Coordinator / Farmer

I hail from Thurles, Co. Tipperary, and am currently working for Dairygold in the role of General Haulage Coordinator. I’m from a beef farming background, and in the evenings can be found doing anything that involves hardship and machinery. Farming led me to do four years in UCD studying Agricultural Science where I was fortunate enough to complete part of my work experience in South Island New Zealand where I worked on a 1,000-cow dairy farm. That experience spawned a love of travelling! I have been organising class trips to destinations in Europe for the last four years, which sees between 60 and 80 energetic Ags hitting the major cities of Europe.
